Control of leaf eating caterpillar in groundnut:
If the humidity in atmosphere remains higher for a longer period, the infestation of this pest is increased. The caterpillars hide in creak and crevices in soil around the plants during noon hrs and come out during night hrs & damaging the crop. It can also damage during the reproductive stage of the crop. Under higher population, spray thiamethoxam 12.6% + lambda cyhelothrin 9.5% ZC @ 5 ml per 10 lit of water.
